      Sensing his own mortality after suffering two strokes, John Boxford and his childhood friend Dante Ferrante move to establish a network of nursing homes. When they begin to expand their franchise to Latin and South America to include hospitals, organ transplants and fetal tissue procurement to treat old age including Parkinsonís and Alzheimerís disease, John and Dante become entangled in international diplomacy including high wire relations with Fidel Castro and Cuba. In his latest novel, Co-Factors, George Putney looks to the future to give us a realistic view of the century to come. Using fast-paced, action-packed fiction he shows us radical new ways that we will deal with global relations and social problems such as those facing our aging population including the business of health care distribution, organ supply, tissue engineering, and human cloning. This is the final work in The Crab Trilogy that also includes this unique visionaryís previous two novels, The Red Crab Conspiracy and The White Crab. Published sequentially during the first three years of the new millennium, this collection is a must read for anyone who wants to know where our society is going in the decades to come.
